2. OHRID AND THE OHROD LAKE
The town is called also the Jerusalem of the Balkans because of the number of churches and minarets and the many religion and Historical memories spread on a small tiny territory. It is hard to describe how charming is this small town on the shores of the Lake of Ohrid, one of the Earth's most ancient lakes with crystal clear waters and endemic flora and fauna. Ohrid is part of the UNESCO World Heritage.
It has been known since the Ottoman period as "the city of the consuls", since many European countries have consulates in Bitola. According to the 2002 census, Bitola is the second largest city in the country.Bitola is also the seat of the Bitola Municipality. Bitola is one of the oldest cities on the territory of the Republic of Macedonia. It was founded as Heraclea Lyncestis in the middle of the 4th century BC by Philip II of Macedon. During the Ottoman rule the city was the last capital of Ottoman Rumelia.
